TOPIC: New Chilld DLA Claim Success - CFS M.E

New Chilld DLA Claim Success - CFS M.E 1 year 3 weeks ago #149503

I just wanted to write and thank you all for the wonderful guides that we used to compete my son's DLA claim. We received the award decision in under 4 weeks, even though it had to be sent out to "medical support services" to be looked at..

He has been awarded Low Mobility and Mid Care based on my application package, without any additional information being requested from his Doctors and without a medical.

Before I joined the site I drafted my supplementary notes (all 45 pages!!), after I read your guides I had to rewrite it all but it was obviously worth it.

My son is suffering from cfs which I had heard was notoriously difficult to claim for. I did think that he should have qualified for higher mobility and mid care, but I am so pleased that we have achieved this result so quickly and without and wrangling or delays.
